Investigating Sex: Surrealist Discussions, 1928-1932

José Pierre


In January 1928, the surrealists initiated their amazing “researches into sexuality” with a chain of round-table conversations related to key figures akin to André Breton, Yves Tanguy, Louis Aragon, guy Ray, Max Ernst and Antonin Artaud. The transcripts, in all their extraordinary and engaging aspect, are offered right here. whereas there's lots of humor—not it all intentional—the audio system have been making an attempt scrupulously to checklist each element of sexual love, cataloging personal tastes and positions, caliber and volume. This e-book is a special historic list of sexual perform and ethics; a primary textual content for figuring out the surrealist stream and, for all its idiosyncrasies, a rfile that also keeps a rare power this day.
